Multi-ligament surgery is often required to repair or reconstruct multiple ligaments within a single joint, typically the knee. The surgical procedure aims to restore joint stability and reduce pain in patients with extensive ligament damage due to sports injuries, high-energy trauma, or severe dislocations.

 

Heritage Hospital boasts well-trained surgeons and an advanced rehabilitation center to ensure patient's complete recovery. From first consultation to post-operative recovery, our medical team will provide holistic healthcare services with a patient-centric approach.

 

How is Ligament Reconstruction Surgery Performed?

 

The ligament surgery depends upon several factors: type and extent of ligament damage, the patient's age, activity level, and overall health. Advanced MRI, CT Scan, X-ray, diagnostic Arthroscopy, ultrasound, stress tests, such as the Lachman test and the pivot-shift test, and digital Radiography are some diagnostic facilities that are available at Heritage Hospital required to diagnose the injury properly. After analyzing the injury, the doctors and surgeons plan individualized treatment. Here is a detailed description of how the multi-ligament reconstruction surgery is performed:

 

  • The doctors perform a comprehensive patient’s overall health evaluation through physical examination and diagnostic facilities to assess the extent of injury.


  • The surgeon administers general or regional anesthesia (depending upon the circumstances), and makes one or more than one incision around the affected joint.


  • After getting access to damaged ligaments and other structures, the medical team analyzes the damaged ligaments, surrounding tissues, and other structures, like bones or cartilage.


  • Depending on the severity, the surgeons repair or reconstruct the damaged ligament. Ligament repair is performed if ligaments are partially torn, and some functional tissues are left. However, the surgeon may reconstruct the ligament using grafts if the ligament is severely damaged or completely torn. The graft is fixed using screws, staples, and other fixation device.


  • The surgeon ensures the reconstructed ligament provides stability to the joint and adjusts it to achieve the correct tension and alignment.


  • In some cases, additional surgeries are required for meniscus repair, cartilage damage or fracture.


  • The surgeon closes the incision through sutures or staples, and the patient is monitored in the recovery area. After recovery, the patient will require physical therapy, and our well-trained team will provide a well-structured rehabilitation program to regain mobility and strength.

 

When is Multi-Ligament Reconstructive Surgery Required?

 

Heritage Hospital doctors follow a patient-centric approach; we recommend conservative therapies and medications to provide relief if there is minimal ligament damage. However, in cases where these strategies fail to alleviate the symptoms or if there is moderate to severe damage, doctors might suggest multi-ligament reconstructive surgery. Here are some instances where multi-ligament surgery in Varanasi might be best:

 

  • Severe knee trauma due to high-impact situations such as car accidents, falling incidents from a height, or contact sports injuries.


  • Knee dislocations with fractures or soft tissue injuries


  • Several tears in multiple major knee ligaments


  • Knee instability due to ligament laxity or chronic injuries.


  • Complex knee injuries


  • Conservative treatments, like physical therapy and bracing, fail.

 

Before proceeding with the treatment, the doctor at our orthopedics department requires diagnostic reports and medical tests to align the treatment strategy accordingly to provide the highest standard of care. Different surgical procedures exist for multi-ligament surgery in Varanasi because the knee joint has four ligaments: anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate, lateral collateral, and medial collateral ligament.
